The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology recently made an official reply to the People's Governments of Jiangsu, Hubei and Hunan Provinces to support their establishment of national artificial intelligence (AI) innovation and application pilot zones in Nanjing, Wuhan and Changsha respectively. This is the second time that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has carried out the construction of pilot zones in key cities after it approved eight pilot zones in Shanghai (Pudong New Area), Shenzhen, Jinan-Qingdao, Beijing, Tianjin (Binhai New Area), Hangzhou, Guangzhou and Chengdu.China now has 11 pilot zones for AI innovation and application.

 

Chen Xiaohong, CAE Academician, member of CPPCC National Committee and Secretary of CPC HUTB Committee, and Director of Xiangjiang Laboratory, has actively performed her duties and put forward proposals for the establishment of a national AI innovation and application pilot zone in Changsha.

During the two sessions in 2021, Academician Chen Xiaohong, together with 22 members of the National Committee of the CPPCC, including Li Weiwei, Chairman of Hunan Provincial Political Consultative Conference, took the lead in submitting the proposal of "Supporting Hunan to Create a National Pilot zone for Innovation and Application of Artificial Intelligence,". It became the national key proposal of the year and was highly valued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology and other ministries and commissions.In June 2021, Zhu Xiumei, Deputy Director of the Science and Technology Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and her party inspected HUTB and conveyed the reply of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology to the key proposals put forward by Academician Chen Xiaohong. Zhu and her party listened to relevant constructive opinions and suggestions.The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology held a symposium in August 2021 on the supervision and handling work of key suggestions and proposals on "Promoting the Deep Integration of New-Generation Information Technology and Manufacturing Industry and Accelerating the Digital Transformation of Manufacturing Industry." Xu Xiaolan, Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology, presided over the meeting in Beijing via video link. Academician Chen Xiaohong was invited to attend the meeting and speak as a representative of the members of the CPPCC National Committee.

 

Academician Chen Xiaohong believes that the Hunan has a solid industrial foundation to create a national AI innovation and application pilot zone. The province has formed an enterprise cluster with a whole industry chain spanning from the underlying core technology to the upper application. Its characteristic advantages have become increasingly prominent, which are highlighted by special brands in intelligent manufacturing, smart transportation and smart cultural creation. The application of AI technology is at the forefront of the country, which has given Hunan an edge. During the 14thFive-Year Plan period, Hunan Province will focus on implementing the "Three Highlands and Four New Missions" strategy, and strive to build an important advanced manufacturing highland and a scientific and technological innovation highland with core competitiveness, so as to fully stimulate the potential of artificial intelligence development and speed up the construction of AI application pilot zones.

 

Building a national pilot zonefor AI innovation and application is an important step to implement the spirit of the plenary sessions of the 19th CPC Central Committee and the Central Economic Work Conference, the deployment of the seventh meeting of the central committeefor deepening overall reform, and promote the deep integration of artificial intelligence and the real economy.The approval of Changsha to build a national pilot zone for AI innovation and application is conducive to the city for vigorously expandingthe application scenarios of artificial intelligence, and comprehensively improvingthe ability to empower the real economy through artificial intelligence. It is also a vivid portrayal of Academician Chen Xiaohong's earnest performance of her duties and suggestions. For a long time, she has been "doing scientific research with indomitable spirit and writing papers on the motherland".The pilot zone will bring new opportunities and broad space for HUTB to practice its educational philosophies of integrating sciences and “new engineering courses + new business courses + new liberal arts course”, and strengthen the construction of related disciplines and scientific research.
